If you aren’t sure what all goes into the trade-in process, no worries! Our team at Mike Calvert Toyota has put together a guide for drivers looking to trade in their car near Houston, Texas. Continue reading to find out more about what to expect as well as some tips to prepare your trade-in.
Before you begin the trade-in process, there are a few steps you can take to make sure you’re presenting your vehicle in the best possible light. First, take a trip to the car wash to get the exterior nice and clean, and take some time to straighten up the interior, too.
If your car has Bluetooth® capabilities, be sure to unpair your phone or other wireless devices. Cancel any network and data features as well as services like satellite radio. Also be sure to clear out any personal information that may be stored in your vehicle’s tech features.
Next, you’ll want to gather up any paperwork, service records, or receipts pertaining to your vehicle. This is to show you’ve kept up with your car’s service appointments and that it’s in the best shape possible.
You might also want to consider doing research on your current vehicle’s trade-in value. You can do so right from our website with our Value Your Trade tool. Simply enter your car’s information, and you’ll receive an estimate for its potential trade-in value.
Trading your car at a dealer is like a one-stop shop. You’ll be able to trade in your current car, pick out and test drive a new car, and secure financing for it. Our team is ready to help you through every step along the way.
The process begins when you arrive at the dealership. An appraiser will assess your car to determine its trade-in value. Factors like vehicle age, mileage, and factory options factor into this process. Afterward, you’ll receive an estimate that can go toward the purchase of your new vehicle.
Once you have your estimate, or while you’re waiting to receive one, you can browse our inventory to find the right new car for you. If you’ve already decided on your dream car, then you can sit down with a member of our finance team to get the ball rolling on your financing options.
